Stevens by Savage Arms has announced the expansion of their 555 over-under shotguns with three new models. The new offerings are “compact” models designed for smaller shooters or those who prefer a shorter length of pull.
The new “555 Compact” is designed with a 13.25 inch length of pull. Like the full-sized 555, the shotgun maintains the aluminum receiver, reducing weight and easing swing. The aluminum receiver is augmented by a steel insert, which reinforces the breach to ensure long life from the firearm. Barrels are clocked in at 24 inches, which is truly compact for over-unders.
The new models all include Turkish walnut stock and forearm, shell extractors (no ejectors), manual safety, and a single mechanical trigger. The trigger can be selected for over or under shooting. Both barrels are threaded for chokes, with Stevens including 5 from the factory. The safety is mounted on the tang for ambidextrous operation.
The 555 Compact’s new models include one in each 20 gauge, 28 gauge, and .410 gauge. Retail for each model is below $700, clocking in at $692 each.
